It's doubtful that a 10" driver can deliver clean bass, but it depends on your room and needs. I'd choose a 12" driver in the biggest box you can afford and tolerate. For a music only system, a sealed box may be better than ported. In general, two subs can yield a smoother response across a larger area than a single sub assuming no restriction on location. The best location for a sub is room dependent. You might want to read the Harman paper on multiple subs: http://www.harman.com/about_harman/technology_leadership.aspx. Click on White Papers and then "Subwoofers: Optimum Number and Locations", as well as, "Part Three: Getting the Bass Right ".
